I Heart Molly Ringwald

A few things about me ... I love "Pretty in Pink." I came of age during the brat pack era. I cried a little during this year's Oscar's tribute to John Hughes. I preordered "Getting the Pretty Back: Friendship, Family, and Finding the Perfect Lipstick"

And finally, I love advise books. In fact, I started collect them. My first purchase was Tiger Beat Presents Susan Dey's (from Partridge Family Days) Secrets on Boys, Beauty and Popularity.

Zig Zag-ing through Life

I have been a bit out of sorts the last few days. I was going through the motions and being more concern about Captain Craft's comfort then my own. I really hadn't realized what was happening until I asked a friend for a little advise. At the moment I said it out loud, it all made sense to why I wasn't getting satisfaction from my actions, why I was needier than usual, just plain uncomfortable and not flexible.

What the heck does that have to do with bags? Life is about zig-ing and zag-ing just like the bag above. I think I was just zig-ing, going though motions for him and ignoring myself. Once I realized I could zag and things shifted. With that one zag, I was open to others and could get back to being awesome me without worrying about everything else.

I Heart Norma Kamali

Happy the weather is just perfect for my Norma Kamali - Women's Athletic Batwing Cardigan.

Norma Kamali is one of my favorite designers. I discovered her from my Up to Date retail days at the South Hills Mall.

My Charm Necklace

I've been wearing this necklace nearly every day since the Mondo Beyondo class ended.

Key to the Charms (Left to Right):
Large Heart to remember "You Can Trust this Dream", St. Expedient medal from an amazing road trip to New Orleans, Pope John Paul II medal that a gift from a friend who visited Rome, a small heart locket holding a dream of big love, handmade medal listing various adjectives to the word "religious" purchased in the East Village during the early 90s, a Frida medal from my trip to Seattle where I saw her show every day I was there, and finally an anchor of hope. There used to be other charms like a sun with various stones set in it which I purchased in San Francisco and a silver swallow I got in Williamsburg ... One fell off and the other fell apart.

One of My Loves - Louis Vuitton

There is a lack of cool Kindle cases ... I am making do with this repurposed vintage Louis Vuitton mongram agenda case. Yup, that's how I roll.

Getting Ready for April's Showers

I saw these Vivienne Westwood + Melissa rain boots a few months ago. I decided then that I had to have them but they were sold out. Today, I searched Zappos and found them. They will arrive shortly in the mail, hopeful it will be before there is more rain.
